Once you have the basic setup for a Linux based system then you will want to use the DSC platform to configure the systems. In this video you will see a simple of DSC in action as we configure a CentOS 7 system with a configuration delivered from a Window
- [Voiceover] In this video we're gonna take a look…at what happens after you get your OMI server set up,…as well as your DSC resources for Linux…installed and configured.…So I've already done that on both sides.…For this example I'm gonna be using CentOS 7,…as my Linux target node,…and that we have configured and ready to go,…it's already been installed with the OMI,…I already have the DSC resources configured there.…Likewise, on the Windows server that I'm authoring from,…I already have the nx resources configured…and ready to go.…Now, here's an example configuration that we have,…and it's not gonna do anything magnificent.…
It is gonna create a file on my CentOS system…in the temp directory called 'test',…and if I scroll down into this configuration,…you can see I'm just gonna put the words…'hello world' in the file,…I'm going to make sure it's there,…I'm gonna force it, in case any files exist,…and then I'm gonna end the configuration.…So I'm just using a real basic example…to show you how this all comes together.…
Current IT pros will need to understand DSC as they move into managing Microsoft's next wave of server and cloud products that will leverage this important technology. In this course, Matt Hester shows how to write configuration documents, work with DSC resources, and apply configurations to systems via both push and pull modes. Plus, he shows how to troubleshoot DSC and use DSC in non-Windows environments like Linux.
